Role of eld erly
I was a bit surprised and saddened by the comment from Mr Mayes regarding the St Lukes development.
He stated that “the mix of children and elderly people doesn’t work”.
This, in my opinion, is where we go wrong in contemporary society.
Elderly people have a huge role to play in the growth and development of children.
They are our window into life experience.
I know what growing up without grandparents or elderly relatives is like – it’s less than it should be.
If we placed more value on the role of the elderly in society, I think we would have fewer problems with our young.
So the development does not sound so bad after all. PAU L WO O D RU F F E
